Medical Negligence Resulting in Erb’s Palsy
Medical professionals are trained to deal with difficult deliveries. It is up to the doctor to notice when a fetus is at risk and provide an immediate remedy for the problem. A fetus that is larger than normal or in a breech position can be signs that the baby is at risk for Erb’s Palsy.
In many cases, the doctor makes the right decision and the baby is removed without harm. However, in cases when the appropriate amount of force and proper procedures are not used to deliver the baby, injuries can result. An injury to the brachial plexus can damage the ability to rotate the lower arm. Such injuries often require extensive physical therapy. Even if the treatment begins right away, the child may never regain full use of the arm. This means that the child will not be able to enjoy as many activities as his or her normal peers.
Compensation for Brachial Plexus Birth Injuries
In most cases, doctors make the right decisions leading to a safe delivery. However, in some cases injuries to the brachial plexus can occur which have resulted in your loved one’s Erb’s Palsy. If you or someone close to you will be forced to deal with the life-long potential consequences of a birth injury, it is essential to have access to the right care. A brachial plexus injury case can be expensive to treat resulting in repeated visits for therapy and medical attention.
It is up to our attorneys to determine if you have a medical negligence case in order to help you obtain the compensation that you deserve. If your loved one has suffered a birth injury, seeking legal assistance right away can help you to take the first steps towards building a case for medical negligence.
